Rachel Maddow covers Benton Harbor and selling of city radio equipment – UPDATED


Rachel Maddow did a fine job last night of reporting on an issue I wrote about twice this week (HERE and HERE): the selling off of Benton Harbor’s city radio station equipment. Here’s the video:

This was great journalism – kudos to TRMS producer Laura Conaway – that brought together some seemingly unrelated pieces to show the complete picture including Jonathan Mahler‘s recent New York Times Magazine article.

[And, yeah, she called Eclectablog “the essential Michigan website”.]

By the way, the most recent eBay listing has been updated to correct the misspelling of “Equipment” and replaces the improperly used “negligible” with “negotiable”.

It also has one bid.

UPDATE: The eBay post has now been pulled (again). Bizarre.
